LRSOC

Many thanks to the club for host­ing Gary and I. If you would like to find out more about this club see lrsoc.com/fo­rum/. We hope to do more events with them in the fu­ture.

STENA

We used the ef­fi­cient and Series I-friendly Stena Line ferry from Har­wich to Hoek van Hol­land. Although the ferry we booked did leave late at night, they did al­low us onto the ferry an hour or two be­fore the de­par­ture time. Great ser­vice, food and fa­cil­i­ties. You can go to sleep in Har­wich and wake up fresh and good to go into Hol­land! Ideal when driv­ing some­thing as de­mand­ing as a Series I. ste­naline.co.uk

CAMPING NEAR AM­S­TER­DAM

If you are look­ing for a very quiet camp­site within a short com­mute of the city cen­tre then look no fur­ther than Camping het Ri­etveen in Landsmeer. The camp­site is clean and the pitch is grassy with a lot of shade from the trees. Did I men­tion the canals and wa­ter? For more de­tails or book­ings seecamp­inghetri­etveen.nl.

THANKS

Gary Pusey for our safe pas­sage in Toad, the one-of-a-kind Series I that is about as fast as my straight-six Defender. It cer­tainly uses the same amount of fuel!

The Dutch Land Rover Reg­is­ter and Kees Cre­mers for their help with the choice of camp­site, work­ing out the scenic drive routes, RAI photo op­por­tu­nity and great Dutch hos­pi­tal­ity.

An­drew Cross from the LRSOC for mak­ing the mem­o­rable week­end hap­pen.
